OOC: I rushed this but i kind of feel like i went too much into detail.


IC nation name: Ulainesia
Capital: Sa
Government type: Religious Dictatorship
RP population: 52,000,000
Ethnic Group(s): Predominately Ulai (genetically comparable to the real world Tibeto-Burmese ethnicity), with a sizeable migrant and indigenous population.
Language(s): Ulai.
Religion: Susaism
GDP per capita (USD): $27,600
HDI: 0.795
Brief background of nation (or IIWiki): The Savaian nation of Ulainesia was re-unified after a lengthy and bloody war for independence that saw the nation split East to West in a lengthy war of opposing ideology and influence from surrounding major world powers. The ancient Ulai civilization has occupied the Sa river basin for centuries.
The nation is emerging and is attempting to assert itself as a major regional player. The nation is strongly opposed to membership and influence by the CDN and maintains no proper relations with any of it's constituents and prides itself on at least "appearing" self sufficient. According to the "Supreme Guide" (The first 3 volumes of a book written by a female prophet, Susa) , the ultimate destiny of the Ulai nation is to be the religious center of the world and the Ulai people have been empowered by Susa herself. All other forms of religion are tolerated but "Invalid".

Geography and climate of nation: A Mountainous, non arable upper region with a major river basin (Sa) that drains into the ocean in the south. Climate is tropical. Deforestation due to the rapid pace of urbanization and industrialization is an ongoing issue

How will your nation fit within the existing regional power structure? (strengths/weaknesses): The nation is undergoing economic growth and the current government is keen on improving the national infrastructure. The country is heavily urbanized and the amount of arable land is less than 30 percent, as a result, imports are heavily relied on. The civil rights of the individual Ulai are relatively high. Tourism is a major industry, however, Ulainesia is a major place of origin for the illicit sex trafficking and weapons/drug trade. The national police are reckless and corrupt and can have been known to extort Western-looking foreigners.

The internal politics are equally corrupt and the country has been ruled for the past 40 years by a secretive administrator who has made no public statements or appearances. Border surveillance is high and drastic police measures are taken to counter dissent. The foreign policy is aloof and the country aims to remain non-aligned. Areas of land borders are heavily militarized certain air traffic is monitored by a mostly under-construction multi band radar network; whether the systems are completely operational is another question. In the armed forces, there is a major focus on mobility versus firepower, with a unique branch of service catered solely to strategic and tactical mobility, independent of the Air Force or Army (Mobility Support Force). National service was abolished and the military is experiencing a drastic reorganization and trimming. While undersized, the armed forces are heavily funded and well trained. According to the national constitution, NBC proliferation is forbidden. C3I, Electronic Warfare, and Special Operations Forces are major doctrinal focuses.
The nation is a known major financial and materiel supporter to a militant Susa movement who seek to establish worldwide influence by any and all means.

IC nation name: Skjoldeland
Capital: Rjuvik
Government type: Unitary Semi-Presidential Republic
RP population: 23,832,107
Ethnic Group(s): Lhedwinic (Majority), Other Asurans, Native Vestrics, Majulans, Cataians, Arebehkis, Savaians
Language(s): Official languages: Navish, Lilledic, Rigjordic, Motsvaran, Nausikaan, Crethian language, Glanish, Andish, (Inukitut), Kalaallisut,
Recognised national languages: Ostric
GDP per capita (USD): $29,104
HDI: 0.873
Brief background of nation (or IIWiki): https://iiwiki.us/wiki/Skjoldeland
Map claim (Imgur): https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/ ... age301.png

Geography and climate of nation: Skjoldeland occupies much of North-West Vestrim ands shares a small border with the UVSS to the south. Much of the country's territory is in the Arctic Circle limiting the area available for year-round habitation limited. This combined with the mountainous terrain of the Mainland. The Majority of Skjoldeland's population live in Urban Areas such ass Rjuvik and Alingstuna. The Islands surrounding the country provide some shelter from Arctic winds.

Average winter and summer high temperatures across Skjoldeland vary from region to region. Winters can be harsh in many parts of the country, particularly in the interior and Prairie provinces, which experience a continental climate, where daily average temperatures are near −15 °C (5 °F), but can drop below −40 °C (−40 °F) with severe wind chills. In noncoastal regions, snow can cover the ground for almost six months of the year, while in parts of the north snow can persist year-round.
How will your nation fit within the existing regional power structure? (strengths/weaknesses): Skjoldeland is a fairly progressive nation adopting the Lhedwenic Welfare State Model whilst a colony of the UKL. A weak currency adopted in 2004 is pegged to the Navish Skillingr whilst Glacial Melting in the north causes widespread flooding. The Majority of the nation is inhospitable as the North Vestric Mountain range covers much of the central and northern regions.

While I appreciate the Russian regional power vibe your application is giving off, I would recommend lowering the nominal GDP per capita to be closer to $10,000 given the GDP's per capita of neighboring nation-states. I'd probably advise lowering the HDI a little bit as well for the same reason - around 8.2 to 8.5 seems a bit more appropriate. We also need role-play samples if you'd like to play a more significant role. With all that being said, I love the application so far. We just need you to finish it up.

The nation seems to match up neatly with the statistics provided by Songlua, who happens to be one of your approximate neighbors. I would like a bit more detail on your nation's civil war and recent upswing on the world stage, but I suppose that can wait for an IIWiki article. ACCEPTED!!! You'll need two more approvals.

Skjoldeland wrote:IC nation name: Skjoldeland

Short and sweet, but you can definitely work on fleshing out colonial history and collaborating on continental history later. I like the application, the stats are modest enough to fit right into that part of the map, and it seems to fit neatly into our existing lore. ACCEPTED!!! You'll need two more approvals.

HDI: 0.876
Brief background of nation (or IIWiki): Will provide iiwiki
Map claim (Imgur): Location of Makovnia in Aeia with major cities (above 250,000) listed.

Geography and climate of nation: The central portion of Makovnia is temperate plains and forests. The northern parts of the country tend to be more sparsely populated, and is characterized by a colder, more unforgiving climate. The south is the most densely populated region, followed by the central and western sectors of Makovnia. Very similar to irl Russia.
How will your nation fit within the existing regional power structure? (strengths/weaknesses): Makovnia possess significant soft and hard power in no small part due to their extensive military, scientific achievements, diplomatic efforts, and economic influence. Makovnia would be considered, ideally, as a Great Power, with the potential to be an emerging superpower. Despite its relatively positive developments on the domestic front, Makovnia is still isolated within the international community. Hardly any of its major neighbors could be considered allies, and there is little trust as a result of various border disputes and perceived transgressions by Makovnia. Despite a clear administrative attempt to ease up on jingoism and militarism, there is still a major neoconservative presence that continues to push Makovnian foreign policy into conflict with its neighbors. The lack of new trade, economic investments, and diplomatic isolation have begun to take a toll on the recording breaking economic growth sustained from the late 80's until the early 2000's. Possessing a nuclear arsenal and the strongest military in the region, and one of the strongest in the world, Makovnia is no push over.
If asked to reduce the strength of your nation, how would you do so?: Lower GDP per capita, scale back size and scope of the military, small population reduction, possibly shave off some land from the north.

In addition to the suggestions that Fahr has made, I've also recommended some changes on Discord (which include the removal of Poles and Lithuanians as ethnic groups, as well as getting rid of the reference to nuclear weapons), just in case you hadn't seen it yet.

IC nation name: Principality of Ainhar / Prinsaght Awinhiar
Capital: Cianbally
Government type: Unitary parliamentary constitutional monarchy
RP population: 261,983
Ethnic Group(s): 63% Ainharic, 15% Cuirpthean, 13% Newreyan, 6% Lhedwinic (mainly Crethian), 3% Other
Language(s): Ainharic (Manx), Cuirpthean, Newreyan
GDP per capita (USD): $54,019
HDI: 0.902
Brief background of nation (or IIWiki): Will provide IIWiki upon acceptance, mainly a part of Cuirpthe from the Fiorentine Era up to the Great War where Ainhar achieved its independence after the massacre of many Ainharic people at the hands of Newrey during the Great War. A primary obstacle in Newrey's claim to the lands east of the Elsouf River, Ainhar has been hotly contested by the two countries for over a century. A constitutional monarchy ruled by a prince, with an elected Prime Minister chosen every three years.
Map claim (Imgur): Image (both Cuir and News have agreed to relinquish the required land)

Geography and climate of nation: Cool summers and cold winters with temperatures ranging between 20 and 30 degrees in the summer down to -10 degrees in the winter. Rain is prevalent throughout the year and snow is common in the winter. Ainhar sits mainly on fertile, arable flatlands and valleys due to its location directly next to the Elsouf River.
How will your nation fit within the existing regional power structure? (strengths/weaknesses): The Credjucur Accords of 1979 delegated the responsibility of the defense of Ainhar to the Cuirpthean Republic, as part of a move from Cuirpthe to curb growing Newreyan influence in the region. As such, Ainhar maintains no active army, navy or air force, with the exception being the Ainharic Guards - a group of twenty hand appointed palace guards tasked with ensuring the safety of the prince. The nation has been a site of Cuirpthean and Newreyan conflict for centuries and was one of the main reasons Newrey entered the Great War initially, having been an integral part of Cuirpthe for centuries prior. In the modern day, Ainhar is aligned fully with the Cuirpthean Republic although tries to refrain from agitating its northern neighbour whenever possible. Ainhar is a member of the Commonwealth of Democratic Nations and de facto part of the Cyningburgh Pact for International Security through Cuirpthe, although Ainhar did not sign the initial treaty.

Because of the sudden death of tL, I intend on moving my nation to Asura as this app will show. I relinquish Meithtalamh from the map and will be using this nation as my main one to fill in holes in the lore made by tL along with my neighbors.
IC nation name: Wradhia
Capital: Caer Narfon
Government type: Constitutional Monarchy
RP population: 27,304,203
Ethnic Group(s):
  • Ferddi (possibly Welsh, can be changed)
  • Gallo (possibly Cornish, can be changed)
Language(s):
  • Ferddi
  • Gallo
GDP per capita (USD): $19,912
HDI: 0.879
Brief background of nation (or IIWiki):
The modern history of Wradhia begins in the 1400s. By this time, the region had been united under Rhodri II "the Stern". This region had experienced many years of turmoil, from its violent conversion to Alydianism in the Western Crusades to the unification wars that led to many deaths and struggles for power.

Wradhia was desperate to keep up with other Western powers, so it adopted a variety of western thoughts, bringing it into a Golden Age. This led to the arts and sciences to really start to take hold. Exploration began and expansion became a major thing. Notably, the conquest of the Mardin Isles, which it would own until 1926 after the islands declared independence and won a short-lasting war. War with its neighbors was also a common issue and dominated the politics with foreign realms in Asura. Wradhia also was able to colonize the new world. One of the most famous explorers was Cadawg Dyfed. The dynasty Rhodri II was part of, the Seisyllwg dynasty would rule the new nation until the 1640s when the last member, Llwyd "the last", who died heirless. This led to the nobility to elect a lesser duke from Friorle, Midrasia to rule.

The dynasty from Midrasia, known as the Cidaris dynasty, started with Henri and lasted until 1836. The monarchy experienced an overthrow and a civil war that would last from 1836-1842. At the end of this war, those who supported monarchism had won out, but with the Cidaris dynasty surrendering its claims to the throne and unwilling to take it back, the Nwyrainydd dynasty took over once Owain took over as king. The dynasty has since ruled over the realm.

Wradhia joined the Great War on the side of the XXX and ultimately came out as a XXX. The 20th century saw a time of many competing ideologies and struggle for power, but the nation withstood the test of time. In the modern era, Wradhia is a stable and healthy western state, most famous for its sheep and farming.

Geography and climate of nation:
Rhayader, like its neighbors, is mostly dominated by a temperate seasonal climate. The winters in Wradhia can get cold while the summers are warm and cool. The nation truly experiences all four seasons. Wradhia has mountainous midlands, but the nation is mostly flat in nature. This allows for farming to be much easier and more common in the countryside.

How will your nation fit within the existing regional power structure? (strengths/weaknesses):
Wradhia is not at all a power in Asura, and will not be very notable by any means. It will possess a sizable military in comparison to its population, and its economy will not be noticeably larger than its neighbors and nations of a similar size.

If asked to reduce the strength of your nation, how would you do so?:
Remove some of my eastern borders and also lower the population. I wanted to weaken this nation since I felt as though tL was far too powerful for a nation.

How did you hear about Aeia? Currently here, just wanted to move to a new nation for lore reasons.
What other nations do you use on NS? Balzunetta

IC nation name: Wradhia
Capital: Caer Narfon
Government type: Constitutional Monarchy
RP population: 27,304,203
Ethnic Group(s):
  • Ferddi (possibly Welsh, can be changed)
  • Gallo (possibly Cornish, can be changed)

Brief background of nation (or IIWiki):
The modern history of Wradhia begins in the 1400s. By this time, the region had been united under Rhodri II "the Stern". This region had experienced many years of turmoil, from its violent conversion to Alydianism in the Western Crusades to the unification wars that led to many deaths and struggles for power.

Wradhia was desperate to keep up with other Western powers, so it adopted a variety of western thoughts, bringing it into a Golden Age. This led to the arts and sciences to really start to take hold. Exploration began and expansion became a major thing. Notably, the conquest of the Mardin Isles, which it would own until 1926 after the islands declared independence and won a short-lasting war. War with its neighbors was also a common issue and dominated the politics with foreign realms in Asura. Wradhia also was able to colonize the new world. One of the most famous explorers was Cadawg Dyfed. The dynasty Rhodri II was part of, the Seisyllwg dynasty would rule the new nation until the 1640s when the last member, Llwyd "the last", who died heirless. This led to the nobility to elect a lesser duke from Friorle, Midrasia to rule.

I will be abandoning Dayganistan and switching to this nation if it is accepted

IC nation name: The Republic of Batilkesi/Batılkesi Cumhuriyeti
Capital: Bahartepe
Government type: Presidential republic
RP population: 84,000,000
Ethnic Group(s): Turkish dominant, other Turkic, Kurdish, Arab, Georgian, Slavic, Myrian and Veleazan minorities
Language(s): Turkish
GDP per capita (USD): $8700 (nominal)
HDI: 0.794
Brief background of nation (or IIWiki):
Region was inhabited by various ancient people groups which were all eventually supplanted or assimilated by Myrians, Georgians, Indo-Iranian peoples, Fiorentines, and Arabs
Turuks arrive around the year 900, begin to push other peoples out
Turuk tribes unite into a unified kingdom in 1100, begin a campaign of conquest in Sifhar, Majula, and Asura (will work with other nations to flesh this period out). Is able to fund these campaigns through wealth gained by controlling a major overland trade route between Sifhar and Asura and sale of locally mined precious gems and metals
A major military defeat in the 1600s leads the empire into a period of decline as it desperately tries to return to the glory days. Slowly loses territory to revolts and war with neighbours. All territory outside of present borders is finally lost at the end of the 1st Great War
The monarchy is overthrown and the nation begins an experiment in liberal democracy, founding the modern Republic of Batilkesi. Devolves into a 3 year civil war in 1917 with nationalist, communist, monarchist, and religious factions
Civil war is won in 1920 by nationalists who also seek to modernize the country along the lines of the Asuran nations. Attempts to engage with Asuran nations for assistance in modernization
Fights against communists in Second Great War. Halts the FSR from taking the country and expanding into Sifhar but at great human cost
Attempts to join CDN after GW2. Rejected due to insisting to remain a one party state but becomes closely aligned to the anti-communist bloc. Is eventually admitted to the CDN as an observer. Built up a strong military during cold war period to deter FSR. Multi-party democracy is finally introduced in the 1980s but the system remains corrupt, favoring the incumbents
Today the country is still attempting to join the CDN as a full member although the prospect remains unlikely as the government is unwilling to fully commit to reforms to its democratic institutions. With the collapse of the FSR the nation's focus has shifted to asserting itself as a regional power in Sifhar and northern Majula through a mix of soft power and use, or threat of use, of the strong military built up during the cold war period that suddenly found itself without a use in modern times
Map claim (Imgur):
Image


Geography and climate of nation: Mediterranean around the coastal areas, becomes more arid further inland. Generally hilly and mountainous throughout the entire nation. Northernmost parts of the country can experience a temperate climate.
How will your nation fit within the existing regional power structure? (strengths/weaknesses): A country attempting to assert itself as a regional power in Sifhar, although it certainly will not be without opposition from other strong nations in the area. It's importance has always come from its location on the border between Sifhar and Asura, making it important in the exchange of goods and ideas between both regions. Today the nation has important ports helping facilitating trade in the Asur Sea. The military is another strong point, being relatively large and having relatively modern equipment, although the bulk of manpower comes from conscription. There is a large amount of mineral wealth in the country, although environmental concerns have prevented some of this mineral wealth from being exploited. There is also a strong entertainment industry with movies, music, and television produced in the nation being popular throughout Sifhar and parts of Asura. The nation has also become a popular tourism destination. Finally, it serves as a financial center for Sifhar with some of the largest banks in the region being headquartered there

The weaknesses come from a pro-democracy movement and ethnic separatism. One wrong move by the central government could set one or all of these groups off into open rebellion. The country is already dealing with low level ethnic insurgencies in isolated regions, as well as Irsadic terrorism. Attempts to assert itself as a regional power has created tension with neighbours. Single party system is unlikely to remain sustainable forever which may eventually lead to political chaos.
If asked to reduce the strength of your nation, how would you do so?: Smaller map claim, less important and/or widespread historical influence, weaker economy

How did you hear about Aeia? Here already
What other nations do you use on NS? Just this one
Roleplay sample (Optional, though required for claiming a more powerful role): Will provide if necessary

Postby Touxouloutma » Sun Aug 18, 2019 4:53 pm

Sorry if this seems a bit rushed

IC nation name: [Empire of] Touxouloutma (Tusumaan Ceisaricunta, Kejserriget Touxouland, Kesár Méek'tan u Touxouloutma, Ar Keisari Ximha̲i T'udma)
Capital: Karlshagen
Government type: Constitutional Monarchy
RP population: 198 million
Ethnic Group(s): Lhedwinic, Naurikaan, Touxoum, Temh'i, Others (will be negotiated later on)
Language(s): Naurikaan, Lhedwinic, Touxoum (Yucatec Mayan), Temh'i (Querétaro Otomi) (others)
GDP per capita (USD): $9,591
HDI: 0,777
Brief background of nation:

Originally inhabited by various indigenous peoples, Touxouloutma is colonised by Navack which later becomes a part of the United Kingdom of Lhedwin between the 1500s and 1600s. During this period, many Nausikaan make their way to Touxouloutma and over time, they would become the largest non-native ethnic group in Touxouloutma. This distinct Nausikaan identity separated Touxouloutma from other Lhedwinic colonies and created a rift between colony and homeland. Following the age of agitation (1730-1790) desire for democratic self-rule and calls for racial equality from the church culminated in the Blue Stripe Rebellion which received its name from the blue stripes worn by its supporters.

Following independence gained from the United Kingdom of Lhedwin after the Touxouloutman War of Independence (1799-1805), the Empire of Touxouloutma was formed recognising the equality of all men with its democratically elected legislature. A distant relative of the Lhedwinic king was chosen as the Emperor for the new democratic Empire. From 1805 to 1865, the Touxouloutman political scene was dominated by Touxoulism (a political ideology which claimed that the Asuran settlers of Vestrim were the rightful inheritors of previous native empires such as the Popoatl empire). Touxoulism pushed the state to expand its borders and advocated for a strong monarchic unitary state which came at the expense of the democratic legislatures. Touxoulism also led to the Touxoumi Rennaissance an era where the Touxoumi people began to be seen and treated with more respect. Most notably Touxoumi was made an official language in a series of revitalization efforts.

The Age of Touxoulism would end in 1871 when the Touxoulutman Civil War broke out. Emperor Håtan-Kustaa III had enacted a series of policies which had taken powers from the democratic legislatures to himself. The Emperor began to be seen as Tyrannic in the same light as the Lhedwinic king had been seen in only a few centuries ago. The civil war ended three years later in 1874 in the victory of the democratic federalists. Emperor Håtan-Kustaa III was forced to abdicate and was executed for tyranny against the people. The Empire was transformed from a unitary state to a federal one.

His eldest son, Karl IV, succeeded him and reigned from 1874 to 1899. His reign is one of the least popular ones in Touxouloutman history as its primary focus was to save the monarchy and redeem his fathers' actions, as a result, Karl often sided with the Democratic Federalists who opposed the monarchy and were in power against the Unitarians who supported the monarchy but opposed the Emperor's views. The Death of Karl IV is marked as the beginning of the Grand Epoch in Touxouloutma which lasted all the way to 1950 when Temh'i was adopted as an official language. Socialism was the largest political force pushing for equality both racial and between the sexes. The peak of Socialist activity took place in 1916 when the Equality Proclamation was ratified into law giving everyone the same rights as women and men.

From the 1960s to the early 2000s, the Touxouloutman struggle between theory and practise is at its most prominent. Despite recognising all races as equals the Asuran descendants still hold a far more prominent role in society while native groups suffer from disproportionate rates of poverty. Touxouloutma embraced Free-Trade in the 1980s which contributed to economic growth and at the same time made it even more dependent on exporting its goods and increased income inequality noticeably. The Struggle of Touxouloutma in the 21st century is summarized best by "putting theory into practice."

Map claim (Imgur): Link

Geography and climate of nation: Varied: Desert Climate, Summer Mediterranean Climate, Humid continental climate, Oceanic climate
How will your nation fit within the existing regional power structure? (strengths/weaknesses): Minor Power at the very most a regional power. Racial divides, corruption and income inequality result in a turbulent political climate where governments come and fall. Strengths wise Touxouloutma has a lot of resources and is a source of cheap labour, still, the economy is diversified enough where tariffs and sanctions can devistate the Touxouloutman economy meaning the nation is dependent on free-trade.
If asked to reduce the strength of your nation, how would you do so?: Cut down on the population, GDP per Capita and, dare I say, reduce the land area though depending on how much I am required to reduce it, I might switch to a different direction.

How did you hear about Aeia? Kylaris
What other nations do you use on NS? Mihi Mai Ra and Shffahkia
Roleplay sample (Optional, though required for claiming a more powerful role): Mihi Mai Ra (Kylaris) and Shffahkia (Eurth Newsroom)

Any other info you wish to add (Optional): I plan to go more in-depth with Touxouloutma such as adding other ethnicities once I receive feedback on the application. *Edit* Added an expanded history

IC nation name: Republic of Sierra Plata
Capital: Salcada
Government type: Military Dictatorship
RP population: 41,470,000
Ethnic Group(s): Majority Sierran (somewhat like the Southern Cone culture), Ferddi Minority, Diaspora of Panjerans, Small Diaspora of Antonians,
Language(s): Velezean
GDP per capita (USD): $6,303 (Nominal), $19,372 (PPP)
HDI: 0.64
Brief background of nation (or IIWiki):
The Republic of Sierra Plata, colloquially referred to as just Sierra Plata or Sierra, was originally discovered by Jayme Herrero, an explorer native to Veleaz whose journey was set sail in 1468 CE, intended to follow the path of Antonia Vestrimos and the most recent explorer who discovered the continent of Rennekka, Manolo Luppi, and explore the newly found continent, however due to unforeseen events Herrero shipwrecked in Rennekka in modern-day Eshuani. Forced to recover what he could, Herrero and his crew managed to travel inland into northern Sierra, a tropical rainforest which had not yet seen the massive deforestation projects of the early Junta two hundred years later. Herrero survived, although his crew suffered crippling losses, yet were able to reconstruct the ship's mildly damaged hull. Herrero had spread the news far and wide, although he was not recognized for his exploration of northern Rennekka until far later, as a Wradhian venture in the region at the same time that also established a few Wradhian settlements on the coast was credited for the discovery. Veleazean Puritan settlers soon followed Herrero and tales of riches across the sea.

Although the spread of the Puritans was mostly uncontained, due to the mountainous regions east of modern-day Sierra settlers were forced to establish in the abundant plains north and south of the mountains, in modern-day Panjero and Antonia. The Veleazan government soon took notice of the growing Veleazan population in Rennekka and established the Viceroyalty of New Veleaz, encompassing modern-day Panjero, Antonia, as well as Sierra Plata.

While the viceroyalty was assuringly expanding, the natives of Rennekka were soon pushed back into a corner, forced to arms against the colonization effort. Defeated narrowly at the Battle of Trevelo in 1509 CE, the indigenous population were forced to designated land, which consisted of non-fertile regions and the desolate mountains of modern-day north Panjero, as well as the brutal acquisition of their lands, with anyone remaining forced into servitude. The Viceroyalty prospered, with the discovery of resources and profitable lands between 1530 to 1610. However, many in the Viceroyalty's own government disagreed with how the land should be arranged. With many ambitious men that attempted to gain fertile land being denied by the incumbent Viceroy, Hernando de Olano, a rebellion against the Viceroy occured with the support of the initial colony of New Veleaz, the city of Salcada, as well as indigenous people who had been promised concessions if the rebellion was victorious.

After four years of fighting a brutal guerrilla war which coincided with the events of the final Mydro-Commonwealth Wars in the later parts of 1660 CE, the Viceroy was killed and the young self-appointed Viceroy Enrique de Çana took power, although disputed by Veleaz at the time. Çana refused the concessions to the natives, then granted land to those that supported him in office, although much of the land was given to Çana himself. His reign was cut short by a stroke in 1714, which was fatal. Veleaz appointed another Viceroy, who did not make it to New Veleaz after a shipwreck in the Columbian Sea in late 1714.

Left without leadership at the same time rebellions were occurring in other Veleazan colonies, New Veleaz had soon separated itself from its homeland, declaring itself as the Confederation of Norte Costa, centered out of Panjero. Garrisons of the old Viceroyalty were forced to either disarm or slowly starve in a prolonged siege. Norte Costa had practically distanced itself from the rest of Rennekka and the world as a whole, attempting to fix the deep-rooted problems the Viceroyalty had left. Poverty was practically the only common factor in the Confederation's provinces, and a disunified government had not helped. A small dispute on the province's border over coal had soon spread into a civil war between the provinces, causing the collapse of the First Confederation.

The three nations had been declared in the Treaty of Salcada of 1789 as sovereign and separate, however, the independence had not changed the problems of before. With the resources that had boosted the Viceroyalty into such power now running out and the countries being no closer than before to solving the economic despair of the First Confederation, it would take a genius to solve the situation - and that is what Antonia had birthed. Patro de Salinas, born on the brink of the 19th century in 1798, enlisted in the military almost immediately after being eligible. Although only becoming a lieutenant in the Antonian Army as a nobody, he had risen to the ranks of Colonel within a year. With the promise of his newly found clique in the form of colonels loyal to him, Salinas performed a coup of the elected government in Antonia and had the new Republic destroyed in 1826 at only 28.

Salinas had ambitions to reunite the Confederation, seeing what could have been. Six years after his ascension, Salinas had applied a band-aid to the economy and marched to war against Panjero in 1836. Although the catalyst of the war was blamed to be a problem with the coal-bearing mountains in the north of Panjero, in reality, Salinas had begun his master plan to reunite the Confederation. After a decisive victory at the Battle of Cresta Redonda, Panjero was subjugated under Antonia's rule, soon setting the old capital back to Panjero and renaming Antonia to the Confederation of Norte Costa, now referred to as the Second Confederation in 1838. Salinas united the Confederation finally by another war, although pyrrhic, against Sierra Plata. With the Confederation now together again at last in 1844, Salinas had time to fix the mistakes of the past by enacting new legislation to unify the provinces together through federalization and further autonomy, as well as rectifying the problems of the economy.

Although Salinas soon died after due to unknown circumstances, his Confederation lived on for fifty more years until 1897, where the Confederation banks dropped massively after a scare in the newspapers at the time. This forced the Confederation to more and more request funds from the provinces, who refused. This time, Norte Costa's dissolution was not with a bang but instead with a quiet treaty where the Confederation was forced into submission economically, or face another brutal civil war a la First Confederation. Salinas' work was destroyed within a week, dubbed the Black Week.

Now, with the Republic of Sierra Plata independent at last on the cusp of the 1900s and the economic issues of the past resolved through a decade of handiwork by the Confederation, the country grew substantially by immigration from Asura, as well as the growing romanticism and subsequent nationalism. The Republic was in a stable state until the discovery of gold and saltpetre in the mountains on the border with Antonia. With untapped potential, immigrants and others flooded in to get their share. The Sierran economy now heavily relied upon the gold and saltpetre industry, and everyone was equal in this race, as the wealthy had not yet attempted to cash in. Not many had earned revenue from the rush, although many tried. Profits slowly dwindled, and workers united under proto-unions to share their earnings amongst fellow workers. As they did, at the same time many of those who failed to receive a substantial profit moved to cities such as Salcada and notably Trevelo, a growing city originally settled by indigenous Rennekkans which was taken over during the Viceroyalty.

With gold soon no longer being profitable due to record low amounts being mined, the unions of the gold workers had spread into other industries and most importantly, metropolitan areas. A shift in society was silently conducted in the Republic, one that proved deadly yet unseen for now. Life in the Republic continued on, with notable silence in foreign affairs during the entirety of its existence. Political freedoms were record-breaking given the circumstances around Sierra Plata and were not to last, as the elections of 1952 took place in a landmark time, after the conclusion of the Second Great War and the beginning of the Aeian Cold War, a period which the Conservatives in Salcada exploited by making accusations against Sierra Union - the most prominent union at the time - and other unions, by the fact that allegedly they were working with the Federation of Socialist Republics. While Sierra Plata and other Veleazan Rennekkans had distanced themselves from their homeland, they still held a brotherhood of Puritan faith and culture with their old homeland, which had now been annexed by the FSR. Threats of the far-left in Salcadan politics had driven many on the right into actions, and Sierran politics had now been shifted into control by conservative orators who had managed to cast the trade unions into action.

The trade unions, who up until now had been disunified, united under a common political front where all trades had an equal say. Their say was almost unilateral, that the demagogues of the Conservative Party, notably it’s leader at the time Jairo Mancebo, needed to be silenced. The method was where many unions had disagreed, with the more radical wishing for violence, while the majority wanted to resolve the situation as peacefully as possible. Although disputed by most sources at the time, a union representative in the council on behalf of the largest union at the time, the Trevelon Gold Union, allegedly had sided with the radicals in a move that forced the unions to either radicalize or face defeat. Although the Gold Union denied this occurring, several sources at the time backed up the version stated.

With all options exhausted, last but not least compromise with the Conservatives - who utterly seeked to destroy the unions after preventing the right’s rise in metropolitan areas, notably Salcada and Trevelo who had a numerous amount of electoral seats. After debate in the council continued for weeks, the unions had finally decided on electing Pablo Laguna, a radical who rose into prominence after representing the workers of the textile industry. Laguna, who had advocated violence, exploited the division of the unions into action against the Conservatives. However, Pablo knew that going directly against Conservative Leadership would be assured suicide - thus resulting in a clever move by having the leftist party at the time comprised mostly of representatives on behalf of the unions not show up to meetings of the National Assembly. Performing this move, along with the party’s coalition, would assure that quorum would not be reached and no new Conservative legislation would be passed. However, what Laguna did not account for was the fact that the coalition’s supply refused to not attend, thus allowing free reign in what is dubbed the “Mad Dash” as Conservative leaders pushed for every fever dream into active legislation.

Laguna’s plans after had came crashing down. With relations deteriorating and tensions rising, it only took a spark to light the room ablaze. The straw that broke the camel's back came in 1956, with the assassination of Jairo Mancebo, the Conservative Party’s leader. Mancebo had been a quite controversial figure, himself only being elected through clear manipulation and exploiting the judicial system of the late Republic into discarding the election of other contenders against the Conservative’s leadership.

His assassination was highly disputed, and although the gunman was somehow able to escape detainment a day after his arrest, his information was covered up by the unions - which clearly marked the beginning of the war between the Conservatives and the Union. After both Conservative and Union militias meet in Salcada outside the capital without firing a shot, the standoff escalated after a brawl broke out, which in turn began a skirmish in the streets. This would mark the beginning of the three week period of absolute chaos in the capital, where shops were looted and deaths occurred on every streetside. What remained of the legitimate government attempted to intervene and force negotiations, yet corrupt military and police officials refused.

Simultaneous with the initiation of violence in the streets, an ambitious Ferddi lieutenant in the Sierran Army, Lloyd Sutton, had requested control over the garrison in Salcada at the same time as violence began in the streets of Salcada and slowly spread throughout the country. With the battle over the capital raging on and inaction of the Government continued to further the situation down the path it was heading, Lieutenant Sutton, just arriving into the city, had ordered troops to march on the Capital as well as government buildings across the city. Sutton occupied the battles after a skirmish between police defending the National Assembly building, detaining the conservative leadership and declaring all legislation passed by the assembly from the “Mad Dash” forward null and void.

Although his loyalty was unknown, Sutton claimed to be a bipartisan strongman who was doing what was necessary to save the Republic - by destroying it at the same time, although claiming that he would relinquish control to the Assembly after the crisis was averted. Union leadership under Pablo Laguna had agreed to meet Sutton, however after a brief skirmish on the way, Laguna was dead and Sutton marched on remaining remnants of the union in Sierra Plata. Although, happening at the same time the Panjeran Unitary Republic seized lands at the mouth of the river border, afraid that the jingoistic new dictatorship might use the river as a staging area into the Panjeran heartland. This claim is still not recognized by Sierra Plata.

Forced into the mountains, the union was no longer a major threat to Sutton. He now focused back on internal politics, where he officially dissolved the Assembly permanently and replaced it with the National Commissariat, composed of military officers - predominantly of the Army - under Sutton’s thumb. Sutton cracked down on civil rights, freedom, and failed to bring his promise of stepping down for the National Assembly. He started a nation-wide purge of the political parties of the late Republic, having many killed indirectly or detained to secure the Commissariat’s power.

Sutton would die of a heart attack in 1988, leaving a power vacuum in the Commissariat for Martín Cicerón’s clique to fill. General Martin was notoriously against the unions and socialism as a whole, proclaiming all in all that Sierra Plata needed to be whole again, and the union response was silence from the mountains, remnants of the Cold War which some contingents had been armed and funded by Sierra Plata against Panjero, which had turned against both governments. Martin had instituted a number of reforms, some conflicting with the earlier Sutton’s, such as removing notable naval institutions as well as installing pro-Ciceron officers in each province, a stark contrast of sharing his power with the Commissariat.

In 2004, Ciceron would face a sweeping attack by Union forces on the border, and although not entirely unexpected in the Commissariat, the response was delayed leading to the mountainous dependencies being entirely lost, although the expansion was contained before further damages could have been dealt. With containment underway, Ciceron looked in other directions. The economy was in shambles, with post-Sutton Sierra delivering way to poverty that had only been witnessed by the First Confederation, as well as widespread crime and other issues that plagued the nation. Ciceron would attempt to rectify it through a five-year plan that would spectacularly fail, only bringing more issues into light.


TL;DR, the Republic of Sierra Plata was colonized by Veleazan Puritans, establishing the Viceroyalty of New Veleaz comprising of modern-day Panjero, Sierra Plata, and Antonia. Soon, internal strife struck the Viceroyalty which led to the Confederation of Norte Costa. While the Confederation was not to last, as a civil war struck again and divided the provinces into three primary sovereign states that were afflicted with the economic problems that had been deep-rooted in the Viceroyalty. Over a period of thirty years, the separate nations faced internal troubles which had given way to an Antonian Colonel that unified the nations as the Second Confederation, which had been able to resolve the issues the First Confederation could not.

A decade later, the Second Confederation faced a massive drop of the banks that in turn led the government forced to request money from the now autonomous provinces. The provinces declined, which led to the Second Confederation being silently disbanded a la Treaty of Salcada, or the Confederation would be faced with another brutal civil war.

Now, with the three nations seperate for another time, the Republic of Sierra Plata had been formed, which had in comparison to the rest of it’s history record breaking reforms, civil rights, and political freedoms for the time. Soon, though, due to the discovery of gold on it’s border and the influx of immigrants attempting to cash in destabilized the Republic, giving way to the control of trade unions which dominated politics until the middle 1900s, around the same time the Second Great War concluded and a red scare began in the Republic as it’s homeland of Veleaz was overtaken by socialists, where Conservative demagogues attempted to change the status quo and wage a political war against the unions - which in return led to violence in the streets in a period of anarchy in the capital, Salcada.

A supposed strongman from the Army took control of the garrison in Salcada at this time, ambitiously moving troops to occupy the government quarters and force both union and conservative leadership under his wing in a swift move to eliminate opposition. With the support of the army, Lieutenant Lloyd Sutton took control of the Republic, promising to relinquish power once the crisis had been averted. After the union and conservatives were quelled, Sutton procedurally eliminated the opposition in the form of the late Republic’s National Assembly, forming the National Commissariat.

Although Sutton died of a heart attack in 1988, General Martin Ciceron took over the power vacuum and rather then appointing power to the military, grew his own power and ignored the Commissariat, all the while what remained of the socialist union hid on the border mountain dependencies, slowly growing control.

Geography and climate of nation: Sierra Plata was notable during its colonization for it’s vast swaths of unconquerable rainforests located in the north on the isthmus border with Eshuani, only being stopped by a small array of mountains to the border with Panjero.

The more fertile lands are located to the southwest and west respectively, with major settlements being there. However, likely the most economically crucial land to Sierra Plata are located on the Sendoa Lake to the east, sharing it’s water border with Panjero, Antonia, and Eshuani. Protected and isolated by mountains to its east, south, and west, with only a few valleys leading in, holds the breadbasket and the majority of Sierra Plata’s economic center. However, this crucial area has been maintained under the control of the socialist state which established a provisional government-in-exile.
How will your nation fit within the existing regional power structure? (strengths/weaknesses): While not even close to a Rennekkan regional power, Sierra Plata boasts about it’s military - although in reality crippled with widespread corruption and forced into conscription, with lackluster training and even more a depressingly small budget. It’s government is forced with small internal strifes that force it’s attention elsewhere, and at the same time of a guerrilla insurgency occurring on it’s fringe border with Panjero.

However, even economically Sierra Plata is in shambles. With the quality of life dropping almost everyday and poverty widespread, the only hope is a miracle. Untapped resources located in the forests of the northern isthmus have thus far failed to have been recognized by the Commissariat, and those that are, are in rebel hands on the border.

Economically reliant on rapidly depleting minerals, such as Copper and the now useless Saltpetre, located on the border regions and farms located in the south, although even these are in jeopardy as military officers attempting to secure lands for themselves have often prevented agricultural reforms or land reforms from being passed, and although the new class of officers have landed themselves, they lack the efficiency and workers that the prior Republic had.
If asked to reduce the strength of your nation, how would you do so?:
Reduce the size by half to a quarter, as well as removing half of the population.
How did you hear about Aeia? I don’t really remember, I suppose I saw it on the embassy lists of a few well known roleplaying regions and heard good things about it.
What other nations do you use on NS? None at the moment, however I have used Rhuritania predominantly, as well as Cosedonia, Midphalia, and other minor countries used for roleplaying.
Roleplay sample (Optional, though required for claiming a more powerful role):

Any other info you wish to add (Optional): This application was jointly made along with Panjero and Antonia. As well, I understand that in my past I did a lot of flip flopping between nations. I believe that was a year ago, but nonetheless I hope not to repeat the same mistakes I made last time, and hence why my ‘brief’ description of my nation’s history might be so long.

Government type: Constitutional Unitary Semi-Presidential Republic
RP population: 36,053,090
Ethnic Group(s): 60% Panjeran (Mestizos), 25% Indigenous (Andean, Aymara, Quechua, etc) 6% White, 4% Black 5%.

Brief background of nation (or IIWiki): The Unitary Republic of Panjero, or Panjero, was originally inhabited by Natives and later some Veleazan Puritans as the Viceroyalty of New Veleaz, in place of modern-day Panjero, Sierra Plata, and Antonia. Part of the Veleazan conquest and later domination of the continent of Rennekka until the later part of the 1700s, where internal strife created the Confederation of Norte Costa, a successor state to the Viceroyalty comprising of its territory. However, the Confederation would not last long due to deep-rooted problems leftover from the Viceroyalty, primarily the exile of the indigenous people during its turbulent years to Panjero.

Although independence for the Panjeran state would only last for a few years, as an Antonian Colonel took control over the territory of Panjero and Sierra Plata and formed the Second Confederation of Norte Costa, one which proved more successful than it’s prior. With the backing of the provinces, the Second Confederation would see democratic reforms and liberalization along with industrialization. This era would last only for a decade, with the Confederation breaking down peacefully into the three states again.

The Panjeran Republic had been created, this time permanently. However, rule came from the Veleazan Puritans which had dominated the past three hundred years of Rennekkan politics. Due to the exilement after the Viceroyalty wars against the indigenous people, many had been forced to the desolate mountains that Panjero had claimed. No longer being forced in said land from the Viceroyalty nor Confederation, they had took residence in Panjero. Although disenfranchised, they soon controlled most metropolitan areas and campaigned for enfranchisement against the upper Veleazan class, which they soon found success and the ability to vote.

The country grew in population throughout the 19th and 20th century through immigration and would stay on the backburner of international affairs until the Aeian Cold War. The effects of the Cold War were felt along the bordering nations of Panjero, in Sierra Plata and Antonia. With Sierra Plata in civil strife, Panjero preemptively launched a military operation to secure the mouth of the river both nations shared. The justification behind the operation was “to provide Perryuro security in the likely case of Sierran Aggression.” Ever since 1956, the river's mouth and the cities surrounding it were undisputedly [militarily] Panjeran.

In the 1980s, a radically far-left faction called the “Red Path” would declare a guerrilla war against the Panjeran Government, along with making its interests public that it intended to instate a “dictatorship of the proletariat” and start a “cultural revolution”. The government likewise, didn’t take the threat seriously until two years later, where terror attacks and uprisings caused several provinces to be put under state of emergency. Panjeran Security Forces were forced to fight the war through patrols and search and destroy missions, as they couldn’t fight an enemy they couldn’t see. This lead to human rights violations with constitutional rights being suspended in provinces with state of emergency active. The Red Path, likewise did the same. The peasant class, Aimayyra, and other groups grew disdain towards the far-left faction, and would engage on patrols of their own to deter Red Path influence. A cycle of on-and-off attacks would haunt rural and remote villages for years, a stalemate in practice, but the hearts and minds were more in favor of the government. In 1989, the leader of the Communist Revolutionaries, Raul Guzman, was captured near the Seonda Region, the revolution since then fell into decline, and has believed to have disbanded.

The Panjeran Government would trial Raul Guzman in 1999, and sentence him to life in prison for conspiracy, terrorism, murder, and other various crimes/human rights violations. The Judicial Branch of Panjero would investigate human rights violations on its behalf and would pay families of the deceased if they were found guilty of said crimes. Militias that were nationalized during the decade stayed nationalized, and would receive formal government support, being classified as arms of the Panjeran Armed Forces. Despite the government's victory, it could be very possible the Red Path was inactive, waiting for a time to re-emerge.

Geography and climate of nation: Arid and Dry all around, an exception occuring in the Sendoa Lake District, where its able to function as a more temperate neutral climate surrounded by mountains. To the north is Sendoa Lake, to the west is Sierra Plata, east is Antonia.
How will your nation fit within the existing regional power structure? (strengths/weaknesses): Panjero is a nation that succeeds and emphasizes in protecting the rights of indigenous people, along with embracing their culture, instilling a feeling of national unity. The country has awkward standards of living varying by living in the mountains, or on the coast, near cities. Panjero’s prized city is located in Sendoa, which offers the best standard of living within the Sendoa Lake region. A quarter of the population is untaxed, the indigenous. Finally, Panjero’s Armed Forces relies on foreign imports to make up equipment for its military. Both through lend-leasing, and purchasing surplus equipment circa 1964-1982.
If asked to reduce the strength of your nation, how would you do so?:
I would not wish to compromise not out of stubbornness, but an inability to see how I could be too powerful. However, I would try to emphasize the lengths and limits of my strengths and weaknesses with further context.
How did you hear about Aeia? I came here with welch, whom of which was familiar with Aeia.
What other nations do you use on NS? N/A

IC nation name: Unitary Republic of Antoni
Capital: Ravelle
Government type: Unitary Parliamentary Republic
RP population: 26,537,568
Ethnic Group(s): Majority of Antonians, plethora of Panjerans, few Sierrans
Language(s): Veleazian, Aimayyra, Runi, various indigenous languages.
GDP per capita (USD): $15,640
HDI: 0.843
Brief background of nation (or IIWiki):

The Antoni Republic has traced its origins to when Velezean Puritans had began to colonize the northwestern regions of Rennekka. The colonies was established as the Vicreroyalty of New Veleaz, made up of modern day Antoni, Sierra Plata, and Panjero. It was essentially a confederation of the 3 territories made up of the modern nations mentioned before. Velezean explorer Antonio Ibán was a consquitador which had command over fortifications in the North of Antonia. These constructions were used as a base of operation to hold the garrison of troops which had been fighting the natives south of modern day country.

The Vicreroyalty began to change when internal conflict began to ripple across the region, dividing the provinces into 3 sovereign territories that had stressed the economic issues in the Vicreroyalty. It was until roughly 30 years the 3 sovereignties had once suffered the same economic problems the Vicreroyalty faced. Antonian Colonel Abilio Augusta, however, made an effort to unify the nations into a Second Confederation through the means of diplomatic events that had occurred over the course of the few years. A decade later, the Confederation had a decrease in the banks and began to request the support of funds towards the autonomies.

These calls for help failed, resulting in the peaceful dissolution of the Confederation through the Treaty of Salcada, avoiding the probability of a violent 2nd civil war.

Finally it began to shape up, the Unitary Republic had been formed. The economy around then was still developing, agriculture was widely practiced then, with their stock of money they had started to industrialize their capital city of Ravelle, though it was limited to the money they had. Factories were built along with projects to better improve the infrastructure of the urban areas. The money was used widely, and this resulted in a rise of money being generated in Ravelle. Though this was successful, the economy had still focused on the agricultural sector, what was popular was the export of fruits towards nations up north. Due to the decent economic progression, immigrants from the coasts of Antoni had started to profit from the business.

It was all fine until the chaotic strife of the 2nd Great War ended. During the Red Scares in the Sierra Plata it had leaked into the countrysides of the mainland and into the city. What had fueled this even further was the Antonian’s political outlook, which was predominantly onservative. The performance of the current president had even prompted the newly birthed Antonian Social Democratic Party to begin left wing revolutions in population centers, though they were seen unpopular. The ensuing threat of socialists within the urban populace of Antoni arisen. Violence began in the major industrial cities of Antoni, the combatants were coalitions of Socialists who wanted to install a Marxists-Leninist style of government. Over the past 2 months the Antonian forces went through house to house fighting, infrastructure being damaged in the process. Lt. Col. Sergio Cosme had saw success in his endeavor commanding his forces, the uprisings being put down finally, though at a cost of civilian casualties and damage to the urban infrastructure.

Though the Ravellean Uprising failed, it was now known a presence of the populace were left leaning more than ever, their efforts to replace the government was dialed down, only now they remain a quiet niche group of internal Antonian politics. It would seem that the nation still follows conservatism, revived after the chaotic period of the Red Scare. While there are internal problems within Sierra, there are possible territories of rebels hiding within the rainforests of Antoni.

Geography and climate of nation: The nation maintains a tropical climate with hot consistent temperatures and intense heat. The geography would have oceans, arable farm land, and moist rainforests to the south.
How will your nation fit within the existing regional power structure? (strengths/weaknesses): It’ll fit in with a fine agricultural economy and has a moderate sized industry, one weakness is the nation’s defence force meaning their budgets are limited as they have other needs to fulfill internally. A weakness that’s noticeable is the natural barrier between the mainland and their port city within the shared lake. This would mean that travel is limited to only air, railways, and barely their interstate. A plus would be the current investments put into the economic cities, attaining commercial success.

If asked to reduce the strength of your nation, how would you do so?: I’d reduce the stats of my nation that could make me a power considerably, example being population, GDP, and military.
How did you hear about Aeia? I first heard of Aeia somewhere around 2017/2018 in a discord community.
What other nations do you use on NS? None at the moment.

Brief background of nation (or IIWiki):

The United States of the Empire (Imperial Newreyan: ye United States of ye Empire [ðə jʉːˈnaːtəd̥ ˈstɛːtz‿əv ði ˈʔɛmˌpaː]), also shortened to USE, historically known as Paradisia-and-Topia (Imperial Newreyan: Paradiseia and Topia [ˌpaɾəˈdaːzjə ʔand̥ ˈtɜːpjə]), colloquially also called the Neo-Paradisian Empire (Imperial Newreyan: ye Neoparadiseian Empire [ðə ˈnjɜːˌpaɾəˈdaːzjən ˈʔɛmˌpaː]), is a federation of several countries and territories that form a sovereign state.

Dating back to 749, the Paradisian Royal Dynasty is one of the oldest ones to reign in all of Aeia. But the country’s history dates back until before that because there was the Republic of the United Cities between present-day Leigh, Cruel al-d’Evil and Phacrey. It was just in 749 that Karen the Great of Topia blockaded the Republic with her massive armada of ships, forcing the Republic to capitulate and making herself the First Empress of the Paradisian Dynasty. Over time, the Empire of Paradisia conquered several countries along the shore of the ocean, becoming a colonial empire as early as the 15th century. It also became the richest nation of all of Aeia.

Because the Paradisian and the Topian languages are so complex, they were not good for a lingua franca in the Empire, so the Empire adopted Fiorentine from the Alydian priests who brought the Alydian religion into the Empire. Soon, Imperial Lords followed by the high society and urban middle class adapted the new language, the native languages being driven to the margins of society. With Alydianism came Asuran influence and the attention of Asuran major powers, so major powers from Asura tried repeatedly to colonize the Empire. Both Midrasia and Newrey manage to colonize parts of the Imperial Heartland, being given several coastal towns and strips of uninhabited coast on a 100-years-lease (in case of Midrasia) and 200-years-lease (in case of Newrey). Newreyan and Midrasian languages became more popular with the population, but soon, Newreyan language won because Midrasian imperialists had to leave the Empire. In exchange for the land, the Empire was guaranteed that its own colonial empire would remain intact.

Since the end of the Second Great War, Paradisian economy grew rapidly because oil and natural gaz was found in several of its colonies. In the 60s, the nation was increasingly referred to as Paradisia-and-Topia because of reasons of ethnic inclusivity towards one of the major population groups and in 1975, it was officially renamed to the United States of the Empire to a) no longer meantion an ethnicity in the nation name and b) to give the colonies the status of full states.

Geography and climate of nation: the USE covers a plethora of different bioms across several continents and is increadibly rich in natural resources, such as oil, natural gaz, copper, iron, coal, wood, gold, diamonds or uranium
How will your nation fit within the existing regional power structure? (strengths/weaknesses): The USE will fill the hole that is created by a lack of real major powers outside of Asura. It has very large population and economy and richness. Its military is also very powerful. It is very diverse, both ethnically, racially and religiously, which is, however, also a weakness because of tensions between different people groups.
If asked to reduce the strength of your nation, how would you do so?: I think I would reduce its stats by like 10%, but I don’t think it should be necessary, seeing as the United States of the Empire is not overpowered in any aspect.

How did you hear about Aeia? Lord Okran Himself came to me in a dream. He said I would meet a rich region one day, and I think the day hath cum once I met you, Aeia.

Brief background of nation (or IIWiki):
Region was inhabited by various ancient people groups which were all eventually supplanted or assimilated by Myrians, Georgians, Indo-Iranian peoples, Fiorentines, and Arabs
Turuks arrive around the year 900, begin to push other peoples out
Turuk tribes unite into a unified kingdom in 1100, begin a campaign of conquest in Sifhar, Majula, and Asura (will work with other nations to flesh this period out). Is able to fund these campaigns through wealth gained by controlling a major overland trade route between Sifhar and Asura and sale of locally mined precious gems and metals
A major military defeat in the 1600s leads the empire into a period of decline as it desperately tries to return to the glory days. Slowly loses territory to revolts and war with neighbours. All territory outside of present borders is finally lost at the end of the 1st Great War
The monarchy is overthrown and the nation begins an experiment in liberal democracy, founding the modern Republic of Batilkesi. Devolves into a 3 year civil war in 1917 with nationalist, communist, monarchist, and religious factions
Civil war is won in 1920 by nationalists who also seek to modernize the country along the lines of the Asuran nations. Attempts to engage with Asuran nations for assistance in modernization
Fights against communists in Second Great War. Halts the FSR from taking the country and expanding into Sifhar but at great human cost
Attempts to join CDN after GW2. Rejected due to insisting to remain a one party state but becomes closely aligned to the anti-communist bloc. Is eventually admitted to the CDN as an observer. Built up a strong military during cold war period to deter FSR. Multi-party democracy is finally introduced in the 1980s but the system remains corrupt, favoring the incumbents
Today the country is still attempting to join the CDN as a full member although the prospect remains unlikely as the government is unwilling to fully commit to reforms to its democratic institutions. With the collapse of the FSR the nation's focus has shifted to asserting itself as a regional power in Sifhar and northern Majula through a mix of soft power and use, or threat of use, of the strong military built up during the cold war period that suddenly found itself without a use in modern times
Map claim (Imgur):

Geography and climate of nation: Mediterranean around the coastal areas, becomes more arid further inland. Generally hilly and mountainous throughout the entire nation. Northernmost parts of the country can experience a temperate climate.
How will your nation fit within the existing regional power structure? (strengths/weaknesses): A country attempting to assert itself as a regional power in Sifhar, although it certainly will not be without opposition from other strong nations in the area. It's importance has always come from its location on the border between Sifhar and Asura, making it important in the exchange of goods and ideas between both regions. Today the nation has important ports helping facilitating trade in the Asur Sea. The military is another strong point, being relatively large and having relatively modern equipment, although the bulk of manpower comes from conscription. There is a large amount of mineral wealth in the country, although environmental concerns have prevented some of this mineral wealth from being exploited. There is also a strong entertainment industry with movies, music, and television produced in the nation being popular throughout Sifhar and parts of Asura. The nation has also become a popular tourism destination. Finally, it serves as a financial center for Sifhar with some of the largest banks in the region being headquartered there

The weaknesses come from a pro-democracy movement and ethnic separatism. One wrong move by the central government could set one or all of these groups off into open rebellion. The country is already dealing with low level ethnic insurgencies in isolated regions, as well as Irsadic terrorism. Attempts to assert itself as a regional power has created tension with neighbours. Single party system is unlikely to remain sustainable forever which may eventually lead to political chaos.
If asked to reduce the strength of your nation, how would you do so?: Smaller map claim, less important and/or widespread historical influence, weaker economy

Brief background of nation:

Originally inhabited by various indigenous peoples, Touxouloutma is colonised by Navack which later becomes a part of the United Kingdom of Lhedwin between the 1500s and 1600s. During this period, many Nausikaan make their way to Touxouloutma and over time, they would become the largest non-native ethnic group in Touxouloutma. This distinct Nausikaan identity separated Touxouloutma from other Lhedwinic colonies and created a rift between colony and homeland. Following the age of agitation (1730-1790) desire for democratic self-rule and calls for racial equality from the church culminated in the Blue Stripe Rebellion which received its name from the blue stripes worn by its supporters.

Following independence gained from the United Kingdom of Lhedwin after the Touxouloutman War of Independence (1799-1805), the Empire of Touxouloutma was formed recognising the equality of all men with its democratically elected legislature. A distant relative of the Lhedwinic king was chosen as the Emperor for the new democratic Empire. From 1805 to 1865, the Touxouloutman political scene was dominated by Touxoulism (a political ideology which claimed that the Asuran settlers of Vestrim were the rightful inheritors of previous native empires such as the Popoatl empire). Touxoulism pushed the state to expand its borders and advocated for a strong monarchic unitary state which came at the expense of the democratic legislatures. Touxoulism also led to the Touxoumi Rennaissance an era where the Touxoumi people began to be seen and treated with more respect. Most notably Touxoumi was made an official language in a series of revitalization efforts.

The Age of Touxoulism would end in 1871 when the Touxoulutman Civil War broke out. Emperor Håtan-Kustaa III had enacted a series of policies which had taken powers from the democratic legislatures to himself. The Emperor began to be seen as Tyrannic in the same light as the Lhedwinic king had been seen in only a few centuries ago. The civil war ended three years later in 1874 in the victory of the democratic federalists. Emperor Håtan-Kustaa III was forced to abdicate and was executed for tyranny against the people. The Empire was transformed from a unitary state to a federal one.

His eldest son, Karl IV, succeeded him and reigned from 1874 to 1899. His reign is one of the least popular ones in Touxouloutman history as its primary focus was to save the monarchy and redeem his fathers' actions, as a result, Karl often sided with the Democratic Federalists who opposed the monarchy and were in power against the Unitarians who supported the monarchy but opposed the Emperor's views. The Death of Karl IV is marked as the beginning of the Grand Epoch in Touxouloutma which lasted all the way to 1950 when Temh'i was adopted as an official language. Socialism was the largest political force pushing for equality both racial and between the sexes. The peak of Socialist activity took place in 1916 when the Equality Proclamation was ratified into law giving everyone the same rights as women and men.

From the 1960s to the early 2000s, the Touxouloutman struggle between theory and practise is at its most prominent. Despite recognising all races as equals the Asuran descendants still hold a far more prominent role in society while native groups suffer from disproportionate rates of poverty. Touxouloutma embraced Free-Trade in the 1980s which contributed to economic growth and at the same time made it even more dependent on exporting its goods and increased income inequality noticeably. The Struggle of Touxouloutma in the 21st century is summarized best by "putting theory into practice."

Geography and climate of nation: Varied: Desert Climate, Summer Mediterranean Climate, Humid continental climate, Oceanic climate
How will your nation fit within the existing regional power structure? (strengths/weaknesses): Minor Power at the very most a regional power. Racial divides, corruption and income inequality result in a turbulent political climate where governments come and fall. Strengths wise Touxouloutma has a lot of resources and is a source of cheap labour, still, the economy is diversified enough where tariffs and sanctions can devistate the Touxouloutman economy meaning the nation is dependent on free-trade.
If asked to reduce the strength of your nation, how would you do so?: Cut down on the population, GDP per Capita and, dare I say, reduce the land area though depending on how much I am required to reduce it, I might switch to a different direction.

Brief background of nation (or IIWiki):

The Antoni Republic has traced its origins to when Velezean Puritans had began to colonize the northwestern regions of Rennekka. The colonies was established as the Vicreroyalty of New Veleaz, made up of modern day Antoni, Sierra Plata, and Panjero. It was essentially a confederation of the 3 territories made up of the modern nations mentioned before. Velezean explorer Antonio Ibán was a consquitador which had command over fortifications in the North of Antonia. These constructions were used as a base of operation to hold the garrison of troops which had been fighting the natives south of modern day country.

The Vicreroyalty began to change when internal conflict began to ripple across the region, dividing the provinces into 3 sovereign territories that had stressed the economic issues in the Vicreroyalty. It was until roughly 30 years the 3 sovereignties had once suffered the same economic problems the Vicreroyalty faced. Antonian Colonel Abilio Augusta, however, made an effort to unify the nations into a Second Confederation through the means of diplomatic events that had occurred over the course of the few years. A decade later, the Confederation had a decrease in the banks and began to request the support of funds towards the autonomies.

These calls for help failed, resulting in the peaceful dissolution of the Confederation through the Treaty of Salcada, avoiding the probability of a violent 2nd civil war.

Finally it began to shape up, the Unitary Republic had been formed. The economy around then was still developing, agriculture was widely practiced then, with their stock of money they had started to industrialize their capital city of Ravelle, though it was limited to the money they had. Factories were built along with projects to better improve the infrastructure of the urban areas. The money was used widely, and this resulted in a rise of money being generated in Ravelle. Though this was successful, the economy had still focused on the agricultural sector, what was popular was the export of fruits towards nations up north. Due to the decent economic progression, immigrants from the coasts of Antoni had started to profit from the business.

It was all fine until the chaotic strife of the 2nd Great War ended. During the Red Scares in the Sierra Plata it had leaked into the countrysides of the mainland and into the city. What had fueled this even further was the Antonian’s political outlook, which was predominantly onservative. The performance of the current president had even prompted the newly birthed Antonian Social Democratic Party to begin left wing revolutions in population centers, though they were seen unpopular. The ensuing threat of socialists within the urban populace of Antoni arisen. Violence began in the major industrial cities of Antoni, the combatants were coalitions of Socialists who wanted to install a Marxists-Leninist style of government. Over the past 2 months the Antonian forces went through house to house fighting, infrastructure being damaged in the process. Lt. Col. Sergio Cosme had saw success in his endeavor commanding his forces, the uprisings being put down finally, though at a cost of civilian casualties and damage to the urban infrastructure.

Though the Ravellean Uprising failed, it was now known a presence of the populace were left leaning more than ever, their efforts to replace the government was dialed down, only now they remain a quiet niche group of internal Antonian politics. It would seem that the nation still follows conservatism, revived after the chaotic period of the Red Scare. While there are internal problems within Sierra, there are possible territories of rebels hiding within the rainforests of Antoni.

Geography and climate of nation: The nation maintains a tropical climate with hot consistent temperatures and intense heat. The geography would have oceans, arable farm land, and moist rainforests to the south.
How will your nation fit within the existing regional power structure? (strengths/weaknesses): It’ll fit in with a fine agricultural economy and has a moderate sized industry, one weakness is the nation’s defence force meaning their budgets are limited as they have other needs to fulfill internally. A weakness that’s noticeable is the natural barrier between the mainland and their port city within the shared lake. This would mean that travel is limited to only air, railways, and barely their interstate. A plus would be the current investments put into the economic cities, attaining commercial success.

If asked to reduce the strength of your nation, how would you do so?: I’d reduce the stats of my nation that could make me a power considerably, example being population, GDP, and military.
How did you hear about Aeia? I first heard of Aeia somewhere around 2017/2018 in a discord community.
What other nations do you use on NS? None at the moment.

Brief background of nation (or IIWiki): The Unitary Republic of Panjero, or Panjero, was originally inhabited by Natives and later some Veleazan Puritans as the Viceroyalty of New Veleaz, in place of modern-day Panjero, Sierra Plata, and Antonia. Part of the Veleazan conquest and later domination of the continent of Rennekka until the later part of the 1700s, where internal strife created the Confederation of Norte Costa, a successor state to the Viceroyalty comprising of its territory. However, the Confederation would not last long due to deep-rooted problems leftover from the Viceroyalty, primarily the exile of the indigenous people during its turbulent years to Panjero.

Although independence for the Panjeran state would only last for a few years, as an Antonian Colonel took control over the territory of Panjero and Sierra Plata and formed the Second Confederation of Norte Costa, one which proved more successful than it’s prior. With the backing of the provinces, the Second Confederation would see democratic reforms and liberalization along with industrialization. This era would last only for a decade, with the Confederation breaking down peacefully into the three states again.

The Panjeran Republic had been created, this time permanently. However, rule came from the Veleazan Puritans which had dominated the past three hundred years of Rennekkan politics. Due to the exilement after the Viceroyalty wars against the indigenous people, many had been forced to the desolate mountains that Panjero had claimed. No longer being forced in said land from the Viceroyalty nor Confederation, they had took residence in Panjero. Although disenfranchised, they soon controlled most metropolitan areas and campaigned for enfranchisement against the upper Veleazan class, which they soon found success and the ability to vote.

The country grew in population throughout the 19th and 20th century through immigration and would stay on the backburner of international affairs until the Aeian Cold War. The effects of the Cold War were felt along the bordering nations of Panjero, in Sierra Plata and Antonia. With Sierra Plata in civil strife, Panjero preemptively launched a military operation to secure the mouth of the river both nations shared. The justification behind the operation was “to provide Perryuro security in the likely case of Sierran Aggression.” Ever since 1956, the river's mouth and the cities surrounding it were undisputedly [militarily] Panjeran.

In the 1980s, a radically far-left faction called the “Red Path” would declare a guerrilla war against the Panjeran Government, along with making its interests public that it intended to instate a “dictatorship of the proletariat” and start a “cultural revolution”. The government likewise, didn’t take the threat seriously until two years later, where terror attacks and uprisings caused several provinces to be put under state of emergency. Panjeran Security Forces were forced to fight the war through patrols and search and destroy missions, as they couldn’t fight an enemy they couldn’t see. This lead to human rights violations with constitutional rights being suspended in provinces with state of emergency active. The Red Path, likewise did the same. The peasant class, Aimayyra, and other groups grew disdain towards the far-left faction, and would engage on patrols of their own to deter Red Path influence. A cycle of on-and-off attacks would haunt rural and remote villages for years, a stalemate in practice, but the hearts and minds were more in favor of the government. In 1989, the leader of the Communist Revolutionaries, Raul Guzman, was captured near the Seonda Region, the revolution since then fell into decline, and has believed to have disbanded.

The Panjeran Government would trial Raul Guzman in 1999, and sentence him to life in prison for conspiracy, terrorism, murder, and other various crimes/human rights violations. The Judicial Branch of Panjero would investigate human rights violations on its behalf and would pay families of the deceased if they were found guilty of said crimes. Militias that were nationalized during the decade stayed nationalized, and would receive formal government support, being classified as arms of the Panjeran Armed Forces. Despite the government's victory, it could be very possible the Red Path was inactive, waiting for a time to re-emerge.

Brief background of nation (or IIWiki):
The Republic of Sierra Plata, colloquially referred to as just Sierra Plata or Sierra, was originally discovered by Jayme Herrero, an explorer native to Veleaz whose journey was set sail in 1468 CE, intended to follow the path of Antonia Vestrimos and the most recent explorer who discovered the continent of Rennekka, Manolo Luppi, and explore the newly found continent, however due to unforeseen events Herrero shipwrecked in Rennekka in modern-day Eshuani. Forced to recover what he could, Herrero and his crew managed to travel inland into northern Sierra, a tropical rainforest which had not yet seen the massive deforestation projects of the early Junta two hundred years later. Herrero survived, although his crew suffered crippling losses, yet were able to reconstruct the ship's mildly damaged hull. Herrero had spread the news far and wide, although he was not recognized for his exploration of northern Rennekka until far later, as a Wradhian venture in the region at the same time that also established a few Wradhian settlements on the coast was credited for the discovery. Veleazean Puritan settlers soon followed Herrero and tales of riches across the sea.

Although the spread of the Puritans was mostly uncontained, due to the mountainous regions east of modern-day Sierra settlers were forced to establish in the abundant plains north and south of the mountains, in modern-day Panjero and Antonia. The Veleazan government soon took notice of the growing Veleazan population in Rennekka and established the Viceroyalty of New Veleaz, encompassing modern-day Panjero, Antonia, as well as Sierra Plata.

While the viceroyalty was assuringly expanding, the natives of Rennekka were soon pushed back into a corner, forced to arms against the colonization effort. Defeated narrowly at the Battle of Trevelo in 1509 CE, the indigenous population were forced to designated land, which consisted of non-fertile regions and the desolate mountains of modern-day north Panjero, as well as the brutal acquisition of their lands, with anyone remaining forced into servitude. The Viceroyalty prospered, with the discovery of resources and profitable lands between 1530 to 1610. However, many in the Viceroyalty's own government disagreed with how the land should be arranged. With many ambitious men that attempted to gain fertile land being denied by the incumbent Viceroy, Hernando de Olano, a rebellion against the Viceroy occured with the support of the initial colony of New Veleaz, the city of Salcada, as well as indigenous people who had been promised concessions if the rebellion was victorious.

After four years of fighting a brutal guerrilla war which coincided with the events of the final Mydro-Commonwealth Wars in the later parts of 1660 CE, the Viceroy was killed and the young self-appointed Viceroy Enrique de Çana took power, although disputed by Veleaz at the time. Çana refused the concessions to the natives, then granted land to those that supported him in office, although much of the land was given to Çana himself. His reign was cut short by a stroke in 1714, which was fatal. Veleaz appointed another Viceroy, who did not make it to New Veleaz after a shipwreck in the Columbian Sea in late 1714.

Left without leadership at the same time rebellions were occurring in other Veleazan colonies, New Veleaz had soon separated itself from its homeland, declaring itself as the Confederation of Norte Costa, centered out of Panjero. Garrisons of the old Viceroyalty were forced to either disarm or slowly starve in a prolonged siege. Norte Costa had practically distanced itself from the rest of Rennekka and the world as a whole, attempting to fix the deep-rooted problems the Viceroyalty had left. Poverty was practically the only common factor in the Confederation's provinces, and a disunified government had not helped. A small dispute on the province's border over coal had soon spread into a civil war between the provinces, causing the collapse of the First Confederation.

The three nations had been declared in the Treaty of Salcada of 1789 as sovereign and separate, however, the independence had not changed the problems of before. With the resources that had boosted the Viceroyalty into such power now running out and the countries being no closer than before to solving the economic despair of the First Confederation, it would take a genius to solve the situation - and that is what Antonia had birthed. Patro de Salinas, born on the brink of the 19th century in 1798, enlisted in the military almost immediately after being eligible. Although only becoming a lieutenant in the Antonian Army as a nobody, he had risen to the ranks of Colonel within a year. With the promise of his newly found clique in the form of colonels loyal to him, Salinas performed a coup of the elected government in Antonia and had the new Republic destroyed in 1826 at only 28.

Salinas had ambitions to reunite the Confederation, seeing what could have been. Six years after his ascension, Salinas had applied a band-aid to the economy and marched to war against Panjero in 1836. Although the catalyst of the war was blamed to be a problem with the coal-bearing mountains in the north of Panjero, in reality, Salinas had begun his master plan to reunite the Confederation. After a decisive victory at the Battle of Cresta Redonda, Panjero was subjugated under Antonia's rule, soon setting the old capital back to Panjero and renaming Antonia to the Confederation of Norte Costa, now referred to as the Second Confederation in 1838. Salinas united the Confederation finally by another war, although pyrrhic, against Sierra Plata. With the Confederation now together again at last in 1844, Salinas had time to fix the mistakes of the past by enacting new legislation to unify the provinces together through federalization and further autonomy, as well as rectifying the problems of the economy.

Although Salinas soon died after due to unknown circumstances, his Confederation lived on for fifty more years until 1897, where the Confederation banks dropped massively after a scare in the newspapers at the time. This forced the Confederation to more and more request funds from the provinces, who refused. This time, Norte Costa's dissolution was not with a bang but instead with a quiet treaty where the Confederation was forced into submission economically, or face another brutal civil war a la First Confederation. Salinas' work was destroyed within a week, dubbed the Black Week.

Now, with the Republic of Sierra Plata independent at last on the cusp of the 1900s and the economic issues of the past resolved through a decade of handiwork by the Confederation, the country grew substantially by immigration from Asura, as well as the growing romanticism and subsequent nationalism. The Republic was in a stable state until the discovery of gold and saltpetre in the mountains on the border with Antonia. With untapped potential, immigrants and others flooded in to get their share. The Sierran economy now heavily relied upon the gold and saltpetre industry, and everyone was equal in this race, as the wealthy had not yet attempted to cash in. Not many had earned revenue from the rush, although many tried. Profits slowly dwindled, and workers united under proto-unions to share their earnings amongst fellow workers. As they did, at the same time many of those who failed to receive a substantial profit moved to cities such as Salcada and notably Trevelo, a growing city originally settled by indigenous Rennekkans which was taken over during the Viceroyalty.

With gold soon no longer being profitable due to record low amounts being mined, the unions of the gold workers had spread into other industries and most importantly, metropolitan areas. A shift in society was silently conducted in the Republic, one that proved deadly yet unseen for now. Life in the Republic continued on, with notable silence in foreign affairs during the entirety of its existence. Political freedoms were record-breaking given the circumstances around Sierra Plata and were not to last, as the elections of 1952 took place in a landmark time, after the conclusion of the Second Great War and the beginning of the Aeian Cold War, a period which the Conservatives in Salcada exploited by making accusations against Sierra Union - the most prominent union at the time - and other unions, by the fact that allegedly they were working with the Federation of Socialist Republics. While Sierra Plata and other Veleazan Rennekkans had distanced themselves from their homeland, they still held a brotherhood of Puritan faith and culture with their old homeland, which had now been annexed by the FSR. Threats of the far-left in Salcadan politics had driven many on the right into actions, and Sierran politics had now been shifted into control by conservative orators who had managed to cast the trade unions into action.

The trade unions, who up until now had been disunified, united under a common political front where all trades had an equal say. Their say was almost unilateral, that the demagogues of the Conservative Party, notably it’s leader at the time Jairo Mancebo, needed to be silenced. The method was where many unions had disagreed, with the more radical wishing for violence, while the majority wanted to resolve the situation as peacefully as possible. Although disputed by most sources at the time, a union representative in the council on behalf of the largest union at the time, the Trevelon Gold Union, allegedly had sided with the radicals in a move that forced the unions to either radicalize or face defeat. Although the Gold Union denied this occurring, several sources at the time backed up the version stated.

With all options exhausted, last but not least compromise with the Conservatives - who utterly seeked to destroy the unions after preventing the right’s rise in metropolitan areas, notably Salcada and Trevelo who had a numerous amount of electoral seats. After debate in the council continued for weeks, the unions had finally decided on electing Pablo Laguna, a radical who rose into prominence after representing the workers of the textile industry. Laguna, who had advocated violence, exploited the division of the unions into action against the Conservatives. However, Pablo knew that going directly against Conservative Leadership would be assured suicide - thus resulting in a clever move by having the leftist party at the time comprised mostly of representatives on behalf of the unions not show up to meetings of the National Assembly. Performing this move, along with the party’s coalition, would assure that quorum would not be reached and no new Conservative legislation would be passed. However, what Laguna did not account for was the fact that the coalition’s supply refused to not attend, thus allowing free reign in what is dubbed the “Mad Dash” as Conservative leaders pushed for every fever dream into active legislation.

Laguna’s plans after had came crashing down. With relations deteriorating and tensions rising, it only took a spark to light the room ablaze. The straw that broke the camel's back came in 1956, with the assassination of Jairo Mancebo, the Conservative Party’s leader. Mancebo had been a quite controversial figure, himself only being elected through clear manipulation and exploiting the judicial system of the late Republic into discarding the election of other contenders against the Conservative’s leadership.

His assassination was highly disputed, and although the gunman was somehow able to escape detainment a day after his arrest, his information was covered up by the unions - which clearly marked the beginning of the war between the Conservatives and the Union. After both Conservative and Union militias meet in Salcada outside the capital without firing a shot, the standoff escalated after a brawl broke out, which in turn began a skirmish in the streets. This would mark the beginning of the three week period of absolute chaos in the capital, where shops were looted and deaths occurred on every streetside. What remained of the legitimate government attempted to intervene and force negotiations, yet corrupt military and police officials refused.

Simultaneous with the initiation of violence in the streets, an ambitious Ferddi lieutenant in the Sierran Army, Lloyd Sutton, had requested control over the garrison in Salcada at the same time as violence began in the streets of Salcada and slowly spread throughout the country. With the battle over the capital raging on and inaction of the Government continued to further the situation down the path it was heading, Lieutenant Sutton, just arriving into the city, had ordered troops to march on the Capital as well as government buildings across the city. Sutton occupied the battles after a skirmish between police defending the National Assembly building, detaining the conservative leadership and declaring all legislation passed by the assembly from the “Mad Dash” forward null and void.

Although his loyalty was unknown, Sutton claimed to be a bipartisan strongman who was doing what was necessary to save the Republic - by destroying it at the same time, although claiming that he would relinquish control to the Assembly after the crisis was averted. Union leadership under Pablo Laguna had agreed to meet Sutton, however after a brief skirmish on the way, Laguna was dead and Sutton marched on remaining remnants of the union in Sierra Plata. Although, happening at the same time the Panjeran Unitary Republic seized lands at the mouth of the river border, afraid that the jingoistic new dictatorship might use the river as a staging area into the Panjeran heartland. This claim is still not recognized by Sierra Plata.

Forced into the mountains, the union was no longer a major threat to Sutton. He now focused back on internal politics, where he officially dissolved the Assembly permanently and replaced it with the National Commissariat, composed of military officers - predominantly of the Army - under Sutton’s thumb. Sutton cracked down on civil rights, freedom, and failed to bring his promise of stepping down for the National Assembly. He started a nation-wide purge of the political parties of the late Republic, having many killed indirectly or detained to secure the Commissariat’s power.

Sutton would die of a heart attack in 1988, leaving a power vacuum in the Commissariat for Martín Cicerón’s clique to fill. General Martin was notoriously against the unions and socialism as a whole, proclaiming all in all that Sierra Plata needed to be whole again, and the union response was silence from the mountains, remnants of the Cold War which some contingents had been armed and funded by Sierra Plata against Panjero, which had turned against both governments. Martin had instituted a number of reforms, some conflicting with the earlier Sutton’s, such as removing notable naval institutions as well as installing pro-Ciceron officers in each province, a stark contrast of sharing his power with the Commissariat.

In 2004, Ciceron would face a sweeping attack by Union forces on the border, and although not entirely unexpected in the Commissariat, the response was delayed leading to the mountainous dependencies being entirely lost, although the expansion was contained before further damages could have been dealt. With containment underway, Ciceron looked in other directions. The economy was in shambles, with post-Sutton Sierra delivering way to poverty that had only been witnessed by the First Confederation, as well as widespread crime and other issues that plagued the nation. Ciceron would attempt to rectify it through a five-year plan that would spectacularly fail, only bringing more issues into light.


TL;DR, the Republic of Sierra Plata was colonized by Veleazan Puritans, establishing the Viceroyalty of New Veleaz comprising of modern-day Panjero, Sierra Plata, and Antonia. Soon, internal strife struck the Viceroyalty which led to the Confederation of Norte Costa. While the Confederation was not to last, as a civil war struck again and divided the provinces into three primary sovereign states that were afflicted with the economic problems that had been deep-rooted in the Viceroyalty. Over a period of thirty years, the separate nations faced internal troubles which had given way to an Antonian Colonel that unified the nations as the Second Confederation, which had been able to resolve the issues the First Confederation could not.

A decade later, the Second Confederation faced a massive drop of the banks that in turn led the government forced to request money from the now autonomous provinces. The provinces declined, which led to the Second Confederation being silently disbanded a la Treaty of Salcada, or the Confederation would be faced with another brutal civil war.

Now, with the three nations seperate for another time, the Republic of Sierra Plata had been formed, which had in comparison to the rest of it’s history record breaking reforms, civil rights, and political freedoms for the time. Soon, though, due to the discovery of gold on it’s border and the influx of immigrants attempting to cash in destabilized the Republic, giving way to the control of trade unions which dominated politics until the middle 1900s, around the same time the Second Great War concluded and a red scare began in the Republic as it’s homeland of Veleaz was overtaken by socialists, where Conservative demagogues attempted to change the status quo and wage a political war against the unions - which in return led to violence in the streets in a period of anarchy in the capital, Salcada.

A supposed strongman from the Army took control of the garrison in Salcada at this time, ambitiously moving troops to occupy the government quarters and force both union and conservative leadership under his wing in a swift move to eliminate opposition. With the support of the army, Lieutenant Lloyd Sutton took control of the Republic, promising to relinquish power once the crisis had been averted. After the union and conservatives were quelled, Sutton procedurally eliminated the opposition in the form of the late Republic’s National Assembly, forming the National Commissariat.

Although Sutton died of a heart attack in 1988, General Martin Ciceron took over the power vacuum and rather then appointing power to the military, grew his own power and ignored the Commissariat, all the while what remained of the socialist union hid on the border mountain dependencies, slowly growing control.

Geography and climate of nation: Sierra Plata was notable during its colonization for it’s vast swaths of unconquerable rainforests located in the north on the isthmus border with Eshuani, only being stopped by a small array of mountains to the border with Panjero.

The more fertile lands are located to the southwest and west respectively, with major settlements being there. However, likely the most economically crucial land to Sierra Plata are located on the Sendoa Lake to the east, sharing it’s water border with Panjero, Antonia, and Eshuani. Protected and isolated by mountains to its east, south, and west, with only a few valleys leading in, holds the breadbasket and the majority of Sierra Plata’s economic center. However, this crucial area has been maintained under the control of the socialist state which established a provisional government-in-exile.
How will your nation fit within the existing regional power structure? (strengths/weaknesses): While not even close to a Rennekkan regional power, Sierra Plata boasts about it’s military - although in reality crippled with widespread corruption and forced into conscription, with lackluster training and even more a depressingly small budget. It’s government is forced with small internal strifes that force it’s attention elsewhere, and at the same time of a guerrilla insurgency occurring on it’s fringe border with Panjero.

However, even economically Sierra Plata is in shambles. With the quality of life dropping almost everyday and poverty widespread, the only hope is a miracle. Untapped resources located in the forests of the northern isthmus have thus far failed to have been recognized by the Commissariat, and those that are, are in rebel hands on the border.

Economically reliant on rapidly depleting minerals, such as Copper and the now useless Saltpetre, located on the border regions and farms located in the south, although even these are in jeopardy as military officers attempting to secure lands for themselves have often prevented agricultural reforms or land reforms from being passed, and although the new class of officers have landed themselves, they lack the efficiency and workers that the prior Republic had.

Any other info you wish to add (Optional): This application was jointly made along with Panjero and Antonia. As well, I understand that in my past I did a lot of flip flopping between nations. I believe that was a year ago, but nonetheless I hope not to repeat the same mistakes I made last time, and hence why my ‘brief’ description of my nation’s history might be so long.

Your three are clearly a package deal so I'll give this one a blanket acceptance. The lore is self consistent and I dont see any issues so I'll give you your first acceptance. Sorry for the wait to all five of you.
looks like rennekka is a veleazean monopoly

Brief background of nation (or IIWiki): (This will be subject to heavy change following acceptance)
The Union of Montana Cambi-Tlaxcala and Paislydio is a state in south western Rennekka. It’s history begins with Tlaxcalan peoples. This civilisation remains mysterious to modern historians but it is believed to have ruled over almost all of modern Paislydio and there are traces of them in other areas of the continent. The first Asuran expedition into the area was conducted by the Newreyan Sir Percival Lancaster in 1513, but no land was claimed. The Midrasian controlled island of Sant Amate was settled by Orthodox Veleazan Alydians persecuted in Veleaz in the 1580s. At the time Rennekka was being extensively settled by Veleazans, and in 1602 a trade dispute led the Veleazan Navy to blockade and attack St. Amate. Midrasia surrendered the island, and Veleaz was quick to establish a colony. Although the Orthodox Veleazans and some Midrasians were tolerated for some time, the Cuirpthean Army expelled them following an attempted rising in 1604. From here the 20,000+ settlers fled the island for mainland Rennekka. They decided to refrain from living under either Midrasian or Veleazan governments, subsequently creating their own state while they moved far inland to the unexplored central lands.

The settlers got on well with the first nativos they encountered, and trade relations were established. The settlers elected a man by the name of Alfredo Gustavara as their first Lider de la Gente (leader of the people.) The settlers named the lands El Propio Pais de Alydian, literally “Alydian’s own country”, but it gradually shortened to simply “Pais de Alydian”. Lider Gustavara oversaw the expansion of the settlement and good relations with natives. An attempt by Veleazan soldiers to take the growing semi-nation in 1610 failed and cultimated in the First Veleazan-Tlaxcalan War between 1610 and 1612. Rebellious elements of the Viceroyalty to the north began supplying the people of Pais de Alydian with guns and building supplies, prompting a shift to more modern architecture by 1620. In 1621, Gustavara signed the treaty of Ciudad Maria (Ciudad Maria being the main settlement of the state) with Tlaxcalan Emperor Teotezultan to officially create the Empire vassal nation of Iztac Tlali, although all the citizens of Iztac Tlalli continued to the call the area Pais de Alydian, or sometimes, Paisalydian. This name was first used in a document on the Treaty in 1621. Gustavara became a hero of the people and was hailed leader until his death of malaria in 1630. There was much mourning even among natives. Ciudad Maria was renamed Gustavara in 1631 by the new Lider, the only plantation owner in Paisalydian, John Cambi. Cambi facilitated the first slave shipments into the area, doing
Business with Midrasians sailing through the Rennekkan Channel. Cambi was seen as a businessman rather than a leader, and he gradually undid the native relations formed by Gustavara, sparking the First Treaty War with the empire following his “declaration of independence” in 1634. The war was a success but Cambi became very unpopular. A revolution against him occurred in March 1635, and the twenty year peace in the area came to an abrupt end.

Cambi fled to the Viceroyalty where he tried to gain support for a war in the south. He promised Veleaz that the lands were in fact prosperous, and that the existing settlements had successfully cultivated rich lands for planting. The Veleazan government pledged guns and supplies to Cambi who then bought and promised freed to around 1200 slaves throughout the year, on the condition that they fought for him first. He also hired 500 trained colonial mercenaries to train the Ejercito Negro as the slave troops came to be known. In September, by time of which Paisalydian had reorganised under a democratic government, Cambi led his invasion, taking Gustavara by December. Many battles were fought with the colonial militias but by February Cambi once again controlled Paislydian. From here, he decided to instead of establishing a new regime, set out to conquer the entire Tlaxcalan Empire, which had been cracking in recent years. For this Cambi secures the support of Viceroyalty soldiers and by 1638 had completely defeated the empire. Subsequently, the area was split in two and absorbed into Veleaz as the autonomous Captaincy-General of Montana de Cambi, and the Viceroyal Territory of Pais de Alydian. It remained this way until a bloody war in the Viceroyalty.

Under Cambi’s control, the Captaincy-General established many plantations and mines to suck out the resources. Cambi did indeed free his Ejercito Negro and used them a force to terrorise nativos that would not cooperate with his plutocratic policies. He refrained from using black slaves in fear the Ejercito Negro might turn on him, instead enslaving whole villages of natives and selling some of them around the world for a personal profit. Veleaz decided that the terrible conditions under Cambi could lead to a rebellion of nativos, and in 1647 dismissed Cambi. At first he was outraged but he was promised a noble title back in his homeland. He was made Marquis of (Veleazan area) and became Marquis Cambi. He enjoyed a life of luxury but saw an opportunity to make even more money when a war rose up in the Viceroyalty in the (1660s?). He went to sell guns and supplies to both sides but was eventually exposed for this, and his own soldiers murdered him in 1668.

The period between 1670 and 1700 are poorly documented in Paisalydian. Many statements from the time indicate nativos retook control but documents from the Viceroyalty say that the area became a stronghold for Veleazan control. Both options explain the invasion by New Veleaz in 1703. The area was captured and later became part of the Confederation. The poverty and ruin of the confederation prompted the Montana de Cambi region to secede in 1734. Various wars were fought in the region as its economy slowly declined. Famine and other problems broke out and a widespread anti-Confederation sentiment. When in the 1780s the Confederation fell, Montana de Cambi was barely under its control. Montana de Cambi became a republic in 1788, and proceeded to invade Pais Alydian and the remaining Tlaxcalan lands. It was around this time that Martin Merriman, a Newreyan priest turned explorer arrived in Montana de Cambi. He became famous as a preacher and businessman, ending slavery on his banana plantation and establishing paid, voluntary work. During this time he preached Altdianism peacefully to the Tlaxcalan people, and was a key figure in the founding of the Church of Pais Alydian in 1791. Merriman became known as “Santa Martin de Dorado”, or Saint Martin the Golden. He was called this for his “golden heart”, and became he most famous man in the republic for his ideas. He was elected President in 1794 but tragically died from an assassin’s bullet on December 19th 1794. What became known as the Black Christmas occurred, where mourning replaces celebration on the 25th.

Montana de Cambi established a revolutionary economic system based of the plantation of Merriman. This created an economy in which workers were paid for services and slavery was effectively abolished in most of the country. Due to the rather large difference between the new system and John Cambi, the republic was renamed the Federative Republic of Pais Alydio in 1803. the nation prospered until a violent series of famines and storms struck the country in 1811. The economy crashed and in order to maintain feasible finances the government re introduced slavery and was quick to dismantle the Merriman system in order to save the country. Pais Alydio fractured into small states which warred and ultimately collapsed through the course of the 1810s. In 1819, a young Domingo Luiso, who was actually the great great great grand nephew of John Cambi himself, rose to power in the country of Costa Coca. The small and barely functioning nation soon created an organised military using Negros under the command of Luiso. He declared himself Caudillo of Costa Coca and proceeded to invade the many other neighbouring states, including Gran Montana, Illanur, Merriman and the 2nd Tlaxcalan “Empire”. By 1824 most of modern San Martin was under Luiso’s control. He declared the Empire of Tierra Luiso, and styled himself Emperor. At first his rule was prosperous but his narcissism got in the way of his policies, and he disbanded parliament and wiped out his opposition in 1827. His unpopularity among powerful figures in the Empire led to a Salinas backed coup against him in early 1828, in which the Emperor was executed. The entire country was swallowed piece by piece by The Confederation by 1840.

(Assuming the Confederation ends in 1897 like said in Sierra Plata's application?)
As signs of the Confederation coming to an end in the 1890s became obvious, the inhabitants of the Costa Coca and Tlaxcala Proper began rooting for independence from the government far north. The Provincial Government of Montana Cambi failed to contain the protesters and revolts and in 1894 the Republic of the Tlaxcala Coast. The loss of this hugely beneficial economic region contributed to the ultimate downfall of the Second Confederation in 1897. The provinces of Montana Cambi and Paislydio separately declared independence and then went to war on separate sides of the Great War, with the Kingdom of Paislydio siding with the Concordat; the United Provinces of Montana Cambi fighting with the Grand Alliance. The large presence of Midrasians in Paislydio resulted in the 1899 Revolution in Paislydio; the country had been winning a costly war against Montana Cambi, however Mydros rose up against the Royalists in June 1899 and toppled the King, prompting peace between the two states. By conditions of the Millennial Treaty the nation of Paislydio would cease to exist and be absorbed into Montana Cambi; the federal republic style of the United Provinces was adopted across the nation now called the United Federacy of Montana Cambi and Paislydio. Tlaxcala Coast experienced serious economic problems and in 1902 the government collapsed and for the first time in history, an organized nation encompassing all of modern San Martin would be born.

Map claim (Imgur): (Edit: Spot.) Note: Inside of the blue line is my initial request, inside the maroon is what I will draw it back to if asked. https://i.imgur.com/eqRCMTU.gif

Geography and climate of nation: Going south a colder, more mountainous area will be found; Fridgarian winds often sail in and cause cold temperatures and sometimes snow. Pushing north or west humidity rises and we find a climate similar to Amazon Peru or Ecuador, with mainly tropical forests or plains.
How will your nation fit within the existing regional power structure? (strengths/weaknesses): A slowly growing economy, this nation may soon rise to compete with its neighbours, although living conditions aren’t great and I would not call this a regional power.
If asked to reduce the strength of your nation, how would you do so?: Reduce GDP per capita and land size.

How did you hear about Aeia? The word came around.
What other nations do you use on NS? This is my current only nation.
Roleplay sample (Optional, though required for claiming a more powerful role): I’m not claiming a very powerful role I guess

Any other info you wish to add (Optional): I’m writing this on a bulky old iPhone 7 so don’t be surprised at spelling mistakes. I’ll edit it and talk to some people as soon as I can.
